HISTORY: Justice and sibling Hope were transferred to us from C.A.R.E Henrico after testing positive for FELV.


If you are into “Black Velvets” AKA all black kitties, then siblings JUSTICE and HOPE might be just what you’re looking for! These delightful, super soft to touch kitties are sweet natured, gentle and their personalities are just now rising to the surface! Arriving from C.A.R.E Henrico when they tested FELV+, we had the perfect spot for them to interact and gain kitty knowledge from our other FELV+ cats.

Still very much kittens at heart and on paper, Justice is the ringleader of the two and he’ll be front and center when you enter his room. He’ll show off some smart dance moves and if you move slowly, go ahead and reach out to pet and love on him. He’ll enjoy the attention. He’s open to being picked up (although he can be a bit wiggly) and placed on a cat tree for attention so go ahead and try it! Sibling HOPE is definitely more shy and will scamper and hide when you enter the room. Slow and steady is the way to her heart so when you reach down to pick her up and snuggle with her in your lap, give her some time to settle in and you will feel her whole body relax and perhaps melt right into you!! The purrs will then also begin in earnest.

Both kitties are making wonderful progress as they settle into their new home and while they tested FELV+, they are just as active and playful as any kitties in a comparable age bracket. They are hoping YOUR eyes are on them to bring out their full pet potential. Ideally, they would love to head home together as in their minds, “We’re better together!” Please come and see for yourself. Note:  Hope would also be open to joining another FELV+ kitty in her new home as she's really better suited having another kitty by her side.

More about me April 2024: Take a look this gorgeous little girl, Hope! Unlike her brother, Justice, who is incredibly outgoing, Hope is a bit more cautious. Once Hope gets past her initial shyness around new people, she is incredibly friendly and adores the attention she receives. This little lady absolutely loves being picked up and cuddled, especially in your lap. She is quickly learning to be the purrfect lap cat!

Hope gets along well with the other FeLV cats in her area, although she does not seek out their attention. At this moment she is sticking close to Justice playing with cat toys or she can be found snoozing in one of the cat trees in the room during the day. We have every confidence that once Hope has settled into the sanctuary environment that her personality will fully emerge.
